There's posh meals to impress, puds to make your loved one swoon and surprisingly yummy options that are easy to throw together with ingredients we can all get hold of.

Drawing on theoretical insights from political ecology, eco-feminism, ecological humanities, human geography and critical food studies, the author demonstrates the sticky and enduring nature of anthropocentric discourses. Chapters in this book experiment with alternative grammars to support and amplify ecologically attuned practices of human and more-than-human togetherness.
